I ne senate were vesierauv rDeacea in coin oiittee of the whole upon the bill relative to ta ation. A vtnr animated and interettins discos tion look place upoa the first section which proposed tin taxation of personal property without tvlerence to the debts of the possessor. It wat urgtd in lit support that a treat inequality eaistt in the present system, inasmuch as tlie former who purchases real estate upoa credit, or whose property it incumbered by judgment or mortgage, it yet tas - d to its full value, while on the outer nairn ine mercnam wnote sioca 11 ooiainea in svtimilar manner it entirely eaempt. J o this it wat replied, that to tax personal property without regard to the debit of tlie possetsor, would impose unnecessnry restrictions uixin trade, and operate iniur ously uiion the mercan - uie pan 01 ine community, i ins part ei un: nui wat finally rejected by a small uiaji nty, when me com nil i its rose ana rejiorteu progress. The house of Assembly were yesterday as clusvely occupied upou the important subject of banks. At toon at the ordinary business of deposing of petitions, and receiving reports, was completed, the resolution adopted the preceding day, giren yesterdayj wai again brought up. for tha piirijos e of amending - it. Various amend ments were proposed, and debated for about two aours. Geu. Root made a tremtnJoui attaca Umi the tanki of our state collectively. Th resolution finallv passed in the followioer shape: Jlesolved, That a apfiointed to inouire into tlie mode and manner in which tne several incorjio rated banks wilhm Uie iibic nav 'niiiiutered the trust granted to tnem, anu whi thtr anv or either of the tiflii ers, agents or directors, or other persons by them authorised, have secretly or impliedly diverted any part of the fund? thereof to any improper purpose! or have made um of any undue meant for the purpose ol forcin; their paper into circulation ; and whether they have at all timet promptly com plied with all the demands made upon them for the payor nt of their notes in specie an I whether any or cither of the said officers, agents or diiectorthave been guilty of any fraudulent or usurious practices as such, and whether either or any of them have ued, or now do use, any of tho funds of either of the s.iid banks for covet ous or oppressive purposes. That the taid committee have powers to tend for por ous and papers. Ami also that the commute be instructed inquir by what means the several incorporated banks in this state procured their charters ; and that they report their proceedings herein to this legislature with all convenient speed. It will be observed that this resolution is ma terially different from the one passed the day txv fore; and clothes tlie committee with an abv - lute inquisitorial power. Whether this power will he eierci - cd, or whether it a intended to he held in ttrrortm over the heads ol our bunk gentry, remains to be teen. - Among other proposed amendments to the reso lution, wa one by Mr. Ubhocffrr, granting the committee power to institute an inquiry into the measures note foxing by bank apf licantt to pro - rare charters. This proposition it was consider by tome, implied a suspicion of the integrity the houte. Mr. l.ymle, of Chenango, propoeod at an a mandmenttothb, the committee be instruct further to inquire what meaus were in opera tion at the present time, to prevent the obtaining bank charters. The debate uion the various propositions ws all events amuimg ; but a looker - on would infer from the observations of tome gentlemen. that soma of our former legislatures have been composed of the most wicked, corrupt and abandoned characters to be found in tho country. It this be true, for the honor of the state, we think should not be told to the world. " The truth not to be spoken at all times," is an old maxim Tha resolution diapoed of. the hmise went into a committee of the whole on the report of tin committee on tlie currency or this Mate, uion the iKtiiitin for a bank at Norwich Gen. Koot'i re solution, " (hat the prayer of tho petitioners ought not to be granted," being auderconsidcra tion. Messrs. Thronp and Onk'ey, and several otli rs, spoke upon the occasion. The principal ground ni tho oppoK - rt of the report was, that the x titioti had been in the first instance, rc Arfed tu the wrong committee, a committee known to he hostile tothe iiicorixiMlinnof any Banks. They contended that this summary mode n putting dovn.petitinert wat highly linproier that si.iieniem 01 me ini ts let innn uy tne p"inion rs had not been eiveu in tho report that these pe titionert had a ripht to be heard i . the ordinarj uioje, uc And a wish was cxpreiscil mat tlx Petition might lie recominilb - d to a selrtt com mil lee, who should be at liberty to report a tiin l. ii.. i : . . , i. . pi uie nyuri - . nr t.uunuiiu;c ruse ucii'rc nny thins definitively wat dine.

HCDSOV, March 17. Miratiilmu Ettapi,Y is but seldom that we read ol a more narrow escape from apparently impending death, than will appear in the following instance, Jacob trpatmberg, Jnn. Miller to Capt. Mark Blatner of the town of Livingston, i i this County, during the late flood, white endeavour mc to ward on the enormous quan titles of ice which were comintr ilown lloclift Jansnn's Kill, from the irate of the flume of said ftlatner'e Crist Mill, the flume gave way, and Mr Spjiinbergh, together with the flume were thrown into the rushing current of the Creek, and were precipitated down a verv craggy fall of the height of nearly one hundred feet, to the utter astonishment of every one who beheld the dreadful scene. He went down amidst cakes of ice, pieces of timber, and the foam of the waters, so that the snecta - tors immediately lost sight of him, and supposed him to be drowned or dashing in piece. But, strange S9 it may appear, alttio at first he went to the bottom, he arose, and was car ried down the rapid stream to the distance of half a mile, when happening to be driven ne ;r the shore, he caught hold ot a thorn biuli, by which he drew himself out ofihe water. Being so much bruised as to be unable to walk, he liberally crept up the hill to a neighboring house, about a quarter of a mil - from the creek, whe: e he received every kind and humane attention. ' From th. nee he wat carried home, to the astonishment of his distressed family, who expected never to see even his lifeless body. It it said that Mr. Spaunbergh has an far recovered from the bodily injury be had received, as to be able to attend to hit bushiest. Savannah, March 13. fronx the Erontier.TUe following important extract of a lette was handed to us in tbe morning for publication We hope that the determination it men. inns government to have taken may be toon corroborated by the operations of an adequate force. 'llAi Troan, March 1, 1818. " The army it now on its march to Fort Early V e are informed that Gene - al J. - ic'k - ton has order ed all the Irid'uns who are friendly, to joi'i his command immediately, or thev will be treated at hostile. Colonel Uivis, inspector general, direct from Washington City, informs us, that it is the intention of the general government, to occupy the Florida immediately, and expect that orders have been tent to general Jackson to that effect." CONGRESS. IN SENATE March 18. Tbe resolution yesterday moved by Mr. King, and aoirndd to read at follows, wat taken up and agreed lo : Reolved, That tbe president of the United Stales be, and he hereby h, requested to caue to be resumed and completed, a survey of the harliors of Portsmouth, lioston, Newport, Ne - Louilon, New York, with the two en' ranees thereof, of the waters of the lower Cheapake bay, and of York river, for the purpose th it two suitable stations nify be sil. - cled for the e tibli - hment of arsenal ports ; that in oione li.n with, and aid of, tbe r.aval efficrrs ta be employed in thit tervke, officer) ol the corps of en jfiueert be tinned, wi h instructions lo turve the harbors aud waters aforesaid, and the islands and shores in and about Ihe same, and to report sketches of tha works Decenary for the pralec tion of the several places so surveyed, with estimates of tbe expense ol their construction, and of the force requisite te defend the same. That lhee surveys and reports he laid before the senate ilurinr the first week of the next irs - sion of conreM, with a designation of the two stations, which ia the separate or joint opinion of the perwut to he employed a aforertij, are he mod Gt for the estahluhmenlof the two arse nal ports aforesaid. . By particclar deure of tbe snnscriber. To Ihe Hilar of tht Unihj .Urrr tiler : Sir Mr. harles hall has, in the Erenine Port of last eviiinr,, repeated bit assertion that snt self Mid Uait' - trew were guilty of M falsehood and decKio. - i.n in obtaining the letter - br. j. of 'he hi; I in v1,r. Tht, pub! have already kvfor them the klaumeat of my mU and boat's cr Bnder aata, a lo th fact ailsodioj the traiuactioo, which are directly ia caotradiction to Mr. ilall'a tuwtrtioo. 1 now ttata, that w took tha ban by the desire of capt. iUgera, and with no other with or view than to accommodate hint and the public, as capt. SL bad vary politely furnbhed as with hit newt. Captain Ro;ers, unca his arrival in town, bat declared to Mr. C. Hall, In the presence of tome gentlemen, that be wholly exculpated us from the charges of " falsehood and deception," and told Mr. II. that he must have mu understood bun that the letter - ban were taken from tbe thip solely at his re quest. Th public will now tee what ground Mr. Hall bat for persiiting to charge me and the boatman with using " falsehood and deception" to obtain a load which wat to be conveyed 30 milet in a yawl already loaded with 9 men, in which I had not the least interest further than to hasten the letters to town, and to do a favor to a gentleman who had treated me politely onboard bit ship. As for the allusion to mr private character, in one of Mr. Hall't statements, which would seem to imply tome act of dishonesty, it becomes my duty to state to the public, that I called on Ivjr, C. Hall in person, and demanded of him an ex planation of hit insinuation he replied he kuew nothing about me I tball therefore refer the public to those who have long employed me, to ascertain how far I am worthy ol public trust. I now consider it my duty further to mention in order that the public may have a fair view of thit controversy, that Mr. C. Hall hat repeatedly declared, that had hit demand of 30 dollars on the proprietors of the Commercial Advertiser and New - Yoik Daily Advertiser been complied with, (die turn he expended in chartering a pilot boat to go to hit ship) or, if on our arrival we bad taken the latter bags to hit houte instead of taking them to the post - office, that he never would have troubled the oemmunity with a publication. It really seemt then that had ho ob tained the 30 dollars, hit parsimonious disposition would have been tatisfied, and he would have been saved the trouble, " at writing it not lii profession," of those effusions, which must bave cost him as much labour to write, as he will have hereafter to make good hit charge! of " false hood and deception." I now challenge Mr. Charles Hall to come forward and disprove the above. JOHN M'PHERSON, For himself and hit boat't crew. March 20, 1818. .
